“eating out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

this was our first experience of eating in this style, you are given a card with a red and green sides when you have eaten one course turn the card red side up until you are ready for your next course then display the green side and the waiters know you are ready for your next course,very nice

“Juicy steaks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

If you are a meat fan, this is the place to go while you are in Cancun.
Very good service and delicious meats served with special Brazilian cuts.

“No baked beens and rice here.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012 via mobile

Hungry, thirsty and tired from a long day in Chichen Itza, my wife and I needed belly filling food. Right across the street from our hotel, we saw this Brazilian hotel at the end of zona hotelera. Not willing to walk far, and very curious, we crossed the street into Rio.
We sat, heard the low down on what a churrascaria restaurant is all about. After a small green salad from the salad bar, we turned our table token from red to green, to cue the waiter. Within a couple of minutes we were brought the first of many spitts, each one with a different, charred and tender to perfection treat. Including pork, chicken, beef, pineapple, to name a few.

It was a meal well worth the higher than average price. I will surely return if I ever go back to Cancun.

“The worst place I have ever wasted my money at”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

A large group of us went here, they took us in, it was hot,a/c wasn't working well. They did not have any fresh salad on the salad bar, we should have left then, they started bringing the meats, they were old and dry, the only one edible was the chicken. When it came time to pay they would not run credit cards, so we had to us up our cash. 80 bucks for bad food, never again.

“Terrible Experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

Went there with my wife and kids as they advertise as Steak and Fish. The place was empty, bad sign, and remained empty. The salad bar was very poor,lacking some essentials. No Fish dishes. The beef is good, brazilian style. They have a poor wine selection. Desserts are not included in the buffet! Definitly a no go!
